    Free Camping

    Found this site with a list of free camping Australia wide:
    OzCamps Free Camping Australia

    More detail available per state

    Hope it's of use to some.

    DISCLAIMER: While it is titled as free, some of the comments on the site suggest there is a fee and things may have changed since it was posted on the site.

    There is nothing to tell. I've just provided links to their own website which requires no membership. Nothing has been used commerically OR in any other format. I have complied with their guidelines.

    That's it! I'm moving 'down there' (anyone hiring?).

    Camping is getting quite expensive 'up here'. It's almost as much as getting a hotel.

    You guys are lucky. You can just unroll a swag almost anywhere. On the way to the GTG we have had some of the best camping in some of the most beautiful places, in Mitchell along a beautiful billabong, and along the Cooper Creek near Windorah. It was amazing for free camping.

    Plenty of free camping in my backyard when you come over for the next GTG Ben. I'll even roll out a swag for you...but it may still smell of Wil's body odour :P :P :P

    Re: Free Camping

    Um! Thanks, but no thanks. You got the short end of that deal.

    Bit seriously, thanks for the offer. I still have my swag and it's my favorate way to camp even with having a new ARB Simpon III. I guess that means a lot.
